PCS200 + CCS200 – CO CCW Outdoor Permit + Range Course
This is an online, PRE-COURSE study program for students AND our non-NRA, Colorado-focused, CCS200 – CO CCW Outdoor Permit + Range Course which features four (4) hours on the range with a certified firearms instructor having BOTH law enforcement AND “civilian” instructor certifications.
If you have prior handgun shooting experience of a truly measurable to substantial level, and we don’t just mean shooting a handgun a couple of times in the past, you may enroll directly in our CCS200 CO CO CCW Outdoor Permit + Range Course WITHOUT first completing this PCS200 – Pre-Course Online Study Program or one of our in-person, entry-level courses intended for those that are new to firearms in general, handguns in particular or in need of a “refresher”, etc.
Completion of this PCS200 – Pre-Course Online Study Program by itself does NOT result in any form of certification or certificate because Colorado law does NOT allow completion of a course to satisfy the permit training requirements when that course is taught entirely online. See below:
(5)(a) “Handgun training class” means:
(I) A law enforcement training firearms safety course;
(II) A firearms safety course offered by a law enforcement agency, an institution of higher education, or a public or private institution or organization or firearms training school, that is open to the general public and is taught by a certified instructor; or
(III) A firearms safety course or class that is offered and taught by a certified instructor.
(b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a) of this subsection (5), “handgun training class” does not include any firearms safety course that allows a person to complete the entire course:
(I) Via the internet or an electronic device; or
(II) In any location other than the physical location where the certified instructor offers the course.
